Share Article

Fried & Bonder, LLC, representing the plaintiffs (three former Implementation Specialists) as lead counsel in the FLSA overtime lawsuit filed against MICROS Systems on behalf of all current and former Implementation Specialists, recently obtained a Court ruling allowing the case to proceed as a collective action and ordering issuance of notice of rights to join the lawsuit to all salaried Implementation Specialists who worked for MICROS Systems anywhere in the United States at any time during the period beginning November 26, 2009, and who were denied overtime pay because they were classified by MICROS Systems as exempt from applicable overtime laws.

The MICROS Implementation Specialist overtime case, styled Wilson, et al v. MICROS Systems, Inc., No. 3:13-cv-01328 and filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee in November, 2013, alleges that MICROS Systems misclassified its Implementation Specialists as exempt from the overtime laws and therefore failed to pay them for overtime hours worked as required under the Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and, for Implementation Specialists who performed any work within the State of California, under applicable California overtime and other wage and hour laws. MICROS Systems denies the allegations and alleges that it has at all times acted in good faith that it did not violate the FLSA or other applicable overtime laws.

On January 31, 2014, U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell granted the parties' consent motion to conditionally certify a company-wide class of all salary-paid Implementation Specialists who worked for MICROS Systems anywhere in the United States. Judge Campbell also authorized the issuance of notice to any salary-paid Implementation Specialists who worked for MICROS Systems at any time from November 26, 2009 to the present, advising them of their rights to join the lawsuit.
